.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR ccTLD is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of web users, considering that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
